two. Got to see plenty of blogging pals this week despite being struck down with the bug. On Thursday I was kindly invited by the Propeller Net ladies to the Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden. We had a natter and discussion about blogging (super insightful and engaging) and then we got to indulge in the spa facilities – Tanya and I also had sleep retreats and neck, shoulder and back massages which were heaven after a really stressful bout at work. If you’re after a retreat or fancy indulging with mothers, aunties, etc. I couldn’t recommend the Sanctuary more! Amy, Tanya, Sarah, Natasha, Sherin and I also went for a dip in the pool – bliss.
Yesterday I also went to London for dim sum with Zoe, Winnie and Mandy. Was so lovely to see them all after a few weeks away, and we all had a hearty reminisce about Hong Kong too. We’d recommend the Golden Dragon Restaurant on Gerrard Street if you want the experience for yourself!
three. My sister and I managed to get Infinite tickets! We’re standing which should be an interesting experience, but all in all, I’m excited to see them live. I also tried to get tickets to the opening ceremony of KBEE 2013 to see 2NE1, but to no avail… Anyone manage to get tickets?
four. A big thank you to the insightful and thoughtful responses to my more wordy post this week, by the way. I’ve written a few of these opinion pieces and as they don’t fit in for any of my freelance clients, I figured I should hit ‘publish’ on my own site instead. I didn’t want or intend the post to be moany or feel like I’m ungrateful for my lifestyle, I just wanted to share some of my musings about that fine line between real life and online. You can read the post here.
five. Finally, my 50mm f1.8 lens arrived this week! If the weather holds up (which it didn’t today…), I should be able to shoot more outfits now and create the photos I want to for my other posts. If you have any hints and tips for the lens, feel free to let me know in the comments! I already have a pretty good knowledge of my DSLR and the lens, but every little helps, right?
